Construction Preparations

While the BFG has recently been focused on the new construction projects of the Hudson Valley Development Group down Bentley Lane, quite a bit of activity has been brewing on our humble acre. Grandma's planned arrival (hopefully in the autumn of this year) has made our little homestead bustle with activity. The old oxen fence line has been removed, the small garden bed that I planted flowers in as a child has been destroyed, the flat stones that formed the walkway from the lane to the house have been sacrificed for dirt, the tiny spring flowers that line the bank up the hill disappeared with the removal of the stone wall, and half of the deck has been deconstructed. Construction sites are not picturesque landscapes. But we are hopeful as we await the new and all that it brings to us...especially our Grandma Farmer.
